Table Makeover

I purchased this little beauty at our local Antique Dealer,  Antiques on 48.

Isn't she cute!  She's going to be Stunning! Can't you just hear Bruno from Dancing with the Stars ... Stunning!  Actually she has the Leg of a dancer, too bad she only has one.

I broke out the van Gogh Chalk Paint in Chivalry, Chalk and Mama's Boy.

Here is the drawer painted with Chivalry and Mama's Boy on the inside for a little POP of colour.
I painted the drawer on our kitchen island while listening to Sophia Lauren and Cary Grant in the movie Houseboat, every once and a while I would watch a little of it.

 Here she is painted and the base and apron have been distressed, she's smooth as buttah!
Oh btw, every time I work on this table I think of Sophia Lauren so I'm calling her Sophia.
I designed a french graphic using my Silhouette Design software, then cut it in vinyl using my Silhouette Cameo.
Here is the top of the table prior to distressing with the graphic painted in Mascara and Chivalry.
I added a silver glaze (moon glaze) to the base and Apron to give it a luminous glow.
This glaze is part of the soon to be released van Gogh furniture make-up.
Here she is all finished, I'd like to introduce Miss Sophia!

I'd like to thank my studio assistant for being a good girl and not coming into the studio until Miss Sophia was complete.
Cookies for Miss Molly Brown!

Great job... love it. I love the graphics on pieces... adds a bit of interest to it.

Hope you are well.

Hey Jo,
I love the table but the stencil is so beautiful. Nice job!

You asked about the counter over my washer and dryer and currently it does just sit over the machines. It's on the honey do list to add supports panels on either side but there are always larger projects on the go, you know how it is. It still functions great as a folding area.

take care,

Hey Jo,
A little belated but I wanted to wish you a truly wonderful holiday season (what is left of it) and I'm hoping you have a fabulous New Year!
